. i think we can do that. i am equally certain republicans in congress will not support tax increases, either directly or indirectly. front door or back door. asking american workers to send more of their paychecks to washington will hurt growth. similarly, taking more tax dollars from job creators will result in fewer jobs. i agree exactly with what senator grassley said, the $600 billion tax hike that came with the fiscal cliff legislation at the end of last year was our tax hike. we have gotten the tax hike, and we will not support another one. let's explore representative cole's idea of an expedited tax reform process to get us the pro-growth tax policies that will give us the additional revenue we need. lastly, let's explore enacting the mandatory savings contained in president obama's own budget. president obama has outlined budget savings in the entitlement programs that were courageous, difficult, but they do not cut benefits. these proposals do not cut social security. they do not cut medicaid. no one is suggesting, as has been alluded to, suggested by some members of this c

it is not a fine, it is a tax. you know the government did not argue that it was a tax and even though the people challenging did not argue it is a tax, the supreme court called it a tax, and because it is a tax, you have to pay it first and then seek your refund. this is insane. and so people will have additional tax bill. they must pay the tax bill and petition the irs. begging the irs to have that money paid back to them because there was no insurance policy made available at the time the tax was due. >> that is because of judge roberts' ruling. >> it is because of the supreme court ruling. tax is different than a penalty. if we speed and have a point assessed. if you are i owe a tax and think it is too much. we pay the tax first and get the money back, later. that's what will happen to individuals who will not obtain insurance coverage because obama care doesn't work and the computer system couldn't get them to the insurance carrier and the dead line passed. >> so it is line garnishing the wages. >> it is the moral equivalent, yes. if you owe the tax and don't pay it, your employer will colle

for that with an equal mix of spending cuts and revenue caused by wasteful tax loopholes that benefit the wealthiest americans and corporations. so getting a bipartisan deal to replace quest racial is going to require compromise. there is no way around it. i am going into this budget conference ready to agree to some tough spending cuts that unlike the quester -- sequester caps that disappear in 2022, will be locked into law. i know there are some republicans that would be interested in swapping some of the infish and damaging sequester cuts with programs that would save many multiples of cuts over the decades. i'm ready to listen to their ideas. as long as they are fair for seen yoirs and their families, i'm ready to make some concessions to get a deal. commowmies runs both ways. while we scour programs to find responsible savings, republicans are also going to work with us to scour the bloated tax code and close some wasteful tax loopholes and special interest subsidies. it is unfair and unacceptable to ask seniors and family to bear this burden alone. these are nothing more than wasteful spending
